Two San Francisco nurseries are changing their names.
Floorcraft is becoming Flowercraft, with a nice flower for an O. Their new website is at www.flowercraftgc.com. They are having a Garden Fair next weekend, April 1st and 2nd, 11 to 2, with free seminars and demonstrations. Flowercraft is at 550 Bayshore Blvd, between Cortland and Industrial. You can call them at (415) 824-1900.
Guerrero Street Gardens, which shares a space with The Palm Broker, is about to become Flora Grubb Nursery, at the same location. It is at 1074 Guerrero, between 22nd and 23rd Streets, and can be reached at (415) 648-2670. They are still at their old websites of www.gsgardens.com and www.palmbroker.com, but will soon be online at www.floragrubb.com.
Sloat Garden Centers have an new location at 675 El Camino Real in San Bruno. You can call them at (650) 869-6000. Maybe I will be able to give a lecture there next season?
Any other nursery news from the region? I would love to hear the scoop and will report it here.
Meanwhile, in my windowsill, my cucumbers and tomatoes are up and the leek seedlings are getting taller. Still raining about every second day and we're sick of it. Predictions were for a warmer, drier spring than last year, but so far no sign of it.
